Windows 10 after update crashes ver 1.8.2.620 Aphoto

Recommended Posts

Hi Affinity,  I am struggling with instability of start up after a windows 10 update has knackered the start up of Affinity Photo version 1.8.2.620  .  This is the third time that Affinity Photo has become unstable in the past two weeks.   I have managed to get the latest beta version installed of Affinity Photo with version number 1.8.1611 (Beta).  Seriously Affinity needs to get this issue resolved............. and rapidly.  

Currently version 1.8.2.620 starts to load, gets as far as the main programme window opening and then suddenly crashes !!!!

Cyberlink photo software is running without such idiosyncrasies.  Affinity will loose their reputation rapidly............... Sorry but this is a true statement.

Await some solution ASAP best regards John Edwin Skelton in exile in Slovakia.

Perhaps the following FAQ entry will provide some help:

Hi to forum members,  I have tried every tactic so far recommended to get Affinity Photo to start correctly............ It is still crashing on start up.  Publisher works, Designer works, but not Affinity Photo.

Affinity photo beta works...........  I am about to give up and start to work with another photo editor................   Affinity Photo did work, then it stopped loading, I managed to load a later version of Affinity Photo and got it working again............  Now it is not loading after the start up logo screen has displayed..................  Seriously Affinity has to get to the bottom of such inconsistent software behaviour..........  It is only Affinity Photo that is knackered up..................

Yours most frustrated I have to say.

I can startup the program and use it just fine for a hour or so. Then windows crashes and I can't even get into task manager for several minutes. Then, it starts working again. I am running a fresh install and basic drivers for windows 10 and nvidia drivers. Everything was great until this last update. I love the program and sure a fix will be coming soon. I reboot every hour and avoid whatever is causing this to happen.

Hi to Forum members,  I have just upgraded to the latest version of Affinity Photo running on windows 10.  Legal version !!.  Affinity Designer runs OK on start up, Publisher runs OK on start up, Affinity Photo Beta runs on start up but the latest version behaves just the like the previous version does.  The programme starts to load, gets as far as the main photo screen is starting to display and then simply crashes.  I have uploaded a screen recorder shot to show this stupid situation.  How can anyone recommend Affinity on to other friends when this problem is manifesting itself and so far Affinity has not been able to come up with a mechanism in a step by step way using perhaps a recorded video posted on Vimeo or YouTube.  Or maybe they have done so.  As a 72 and half year old computer illiterate it would be nice to have some step by step guidance to resolve the issue.

In the past Affinity Photo worked on my system.  The situation started to manifest itself after a recent forced windows 10 upgrade.  But why is only Affinity Photo affected and the other Affinity programmes start up as normal after the Windows 10 upgrades........ Yours baffled and frustrated.  Any help appreciated.  Best regards John Edwin in Exile and lockdown in the Slovak Republic................
